New Toy of the Year

When starting this layout, I found the perfect challenge for these photos. My Mind's Eye has this April challenge: This month we want you to share any project (card,layout, altered item) that displays hexagons. I had actually set aside this My Mind's Eye paper from the Fine and Dandy collection that had hexagons all over it!

My other inspiration for this layout came from a sketch from Got Sketch? 
I cut the pennants out of the paper from My Mind's Eye. 

Because I wanted to put more focus on the toy itself I paper pieced my own paper hexbug as an embellishment. Instead of a scroll side element I repeated the hexagon shape.

Found some letter stickers in my stash that were from SEI. What's nice was that there were two fonts in the same color and size. Then I used some tiny letter stickers from Girls Paperie. Stamped the date with the Smash date stamp.

Thanks for looking! 


  1. very nice. love the colors and the layout of the pics..

  2. I love the layout. I like how the flags pull out the color from the blue hex paper. And your little bug is too cute. I think I might have to get some of those toys. They look like fun. For the kiddo of course :)
